No, it’s not just about Donald Trump. This is about a systematic problem with the GOP and their decision-making process. Not just “the establishment” but yes, even you, the voter. Heartfelt, and offensive…
Here in this election, there is one really significant weak spot with Hillary Clinton, she has the second highest unfavorability of any presidential candidate in the history of American politics… So, all Republicans need to do is nominate someone with even a moderately high unfavorability rating. Just an average one. What do Republicans do? They find, and will nominate, the single person with the number one highest unfavorability rating of any candidate of all time.
Donald Trump is the one candidate who will have the highest number of Republicans who, guaranteed, will not vote for him. He’s that candidate. So he’s starting at, let’s conservatively say, a deficit of 10 million when compared to McCain or Romney. He’s starting at that deficit. You believe the guy who’s going into the general with a deficit of millions, based on the polls that we have available to us, with the single highest unfavorability rating in a general election of all time is somehow going to magically gain more Democrats and more independents than any candidate running since before Reagan?
I know, I know, all the Trump supporters out there are probably sharpening their (Make American Great Again) pitchforks right about now. Okay, so you’re angry. That won’t stop us from losing. Sometimes realizing “your guy” isn’t “the” guy is necessary for recovery. Don’t take my word for it, just wait and see.
